A little about me...

Hi, I’m Eric Barnard.

To me, a great day starts with a fresh pot of coffee and ends with something accomplished. I currently live in Champaign, IL, where I focus on trying to make a living within the software development and technology industry.

My skill sets mostly revolve around developing and maintaining web applications and windows-based software (although, I’ve done quite a variety of applications on different platforms throughout the years). I continue to learn new things everyday with the intention of being able to convey those lessons on to my friends and clients.

I grew up on a farm in central Indiana, fully experienced Purdue University, sharpened my skills with the Orr Fellowship in Indianapolis, got married, then landed in Champaign-Urbana, IL where my wife enjoys her dream job with the University of Illinois.

I currently work for myself as a free-lance software consultant, and have a role with Parkland College as an instructor within their CSIT Department.
